Hong Kong shares close up

Hong Kong shares bounced further on Monday from one-month lows seen last week, helped by strength in energy counters as higher oil prices and Kunlun Energy's surprise inclusion in the Hang Seng Index helped buoy interest in riskier counters.

The Hang Seng Index closed up 0.5 percent at 21,262.1, rising for a second session after hitting a one-month low last Thursday. The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings in Hong Kong also rose 0.5 percent.

On the mainland, the CSI300 Index slipped 0.1 percent, while the Shanghai Composite Index closed up 0.1 percent at 2,017 after earlier hitting 1,999.1, its lowest intra-day level since early 2009.
